Community Service Project

Does Your Baseball/Softball/Soccer/Football Field or Playground Need to be Renovated?
The Minnesota Park and Sports Turf Managers Association has the answers! We will select a field from entries submitted and provide the labor for the renovation project. Some materials will be donated or provided at a reduced cost. Volunteers from your organization will be needed to perform the renovation project as well as to care for the field after the renovations are complete.

In 2019, Osseo's Memorial Field was Renovated by MPSTMA!
On September 25, more than 30 people volunteered their time and efforts at this year's MPSTMA Community Service Project at Memorial Field in Osseo. 
A special thanks to our participating vendors. Without their help and equipment, not nearly as much would have been accomplished. Tom Groh and his staff from Minnesota Sodding Company went beyond what was expected. Steve Berg, Berg Turf, was also a tremendous asset. Special thanks to Plaisted Companies and The Tessman Company for their contributions.





Nine Certified Sports Field Managers from MPSTMA were on-hand to renovate Memorial Field in Osseo.
